Facilities and Capacity
Whether couples are seeking an outdoor space for their ceremony, or they require an indoor venue for their reception, Ardovino’s Desert Crossing offers both.
On the Camino Real Deck, couples can make their union official overlooking the nearby countryside landscape. With a clear blue sky overhead, couples benefit from a natural ceiling on fine days. Here, the space can be laid out with brilliant white covered chairs, high-back benches, and a floral arch.
The other outside space on offer is the Sunset Patio. Underfoot, red brick paving and a beige-colored aisle draw the eye towards a natural backdrop of lush green trees and sunlit shrubbery. Soft-covered seats can be set out here for your guests to observe the moment you and your significant other say ‘I do’.
Inside, couples and their invited wedding party can make use of Ardovino’s Desert Crossing’s facility. Terracotta-colored flooring, eggshell-cream walls, and stylish silver chairs arranged around circular tables provide a roomy and elegant place for everyone to enjoy the wedding meal and a few beverages.
In addition to offering many basic services such as cleanup and setup, Ardovino’s desert Crossing also provides a number of other convenient services.
First and foremost is the fact that they serve their own cuisine on site. The venue’s staff are happy to create personalized menus for your special event that can sate almost any palate or appetite. By using fresh, local ingredients in many of their dishes, Ardovino’s Desert Crossing restaurant serves food that reflects the locality. Hors d’oeuvres (smoked salmon rolls, mini caprese skewers), buffet meals (beef tenderloin fillet, chicken rosaria), and desserts (creme brulée, cherry crumble) often populate the menu.
In addition to its rich history, which has been building since the early 1900s, there are plenty of other interesting features of this location. For the couple of honor who want to spend the night in the same setting as their ceremony and reception, the Sweet 57 is available. The vintage travel trailer offers a cozy, funky setting for couples to sleep in charming comfort.

Ardovino’s Desert Crossing
I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Ardovino’s took care of so many details that I did not need a wedding planner. The food was delicious to the point that my guests kept talking about it after the wedding. The hall is cozy and beautiful. The lights on the ceiling have a magical feeling and the view from the back patio is breathtaking.Sent on 07/10/2019
The wait staff was very attentive and organized.
Peggy Stein, the event coordinator was a huge help in making all the decisions that go into planning a wedding. She was easy to communicate with and gave me great advice.
I would definitely have another wedding here!
